Monotone Merlot.

Knitwear // Primark
Cords // Urban Outfitters
Boots // Missguided
Bag // Primark

As the cold months come around I definitely gravitate towards berry tones year after year! There is something warming about the colours wine, burgundy and oxblood that perk up my grey winter skin, so naturally I had to create a head to toe look! Whenever I'm working a monotone outfit I make sure to mix textures in place of colour so things don't look to flat, here I teamed a chunky wool knit with corduroy jeans. Not wanting to distract too much from the one tone palette I've kept accessories to a minimum and gone for a light matching stone wash.

Outfit | Laidback Luxe

Beanie hat // Asos
Faux Fur jacket // Primark
Drop hem tshirt // Primark
Leather joggers // Zara
Bucket bag // Select
Brogues // Missguided

Every so often I feel the urge to channel my inner urban gurl, get back to my err.. roots? I guess I can thank growing up in east London for that and of course my love of hip hop, listening to the likes of LL Cool J, Missy Elliot, and Lauryn Hill must have rubbed off on me more than just my killer dance moves.. hmmm!
The freedom to experiment with outfits and personnas is what can make fashion so interesting and expressive. As long as I'm still sticking to my style of laidback luxe (two parts effortless, one part elegance) I'm comfortable exploring trends, because after all you should be able to develop and adapt your style to find what suits you best. And if you can't experiment in your twenties when can you?!

Outfit | Furry Friend

Coat // Glamorous*
Knitwear // Zara
Jeans // H&M
Trainers // Asos
Bag // Zara

On our last 'Monday Must Have' we spoke about this winters essential faux fur cover-up and I drooled over the endless options available from Glamorous. One of those inspirational images included a burgundy fluffy number that sealed the deal on which colour was the one for me! And here it now is in all its cuddly glory, I literally haven't put it down! It's the perfect pick me up on a cold day. Sometimes fur (with its glam self) can be a little OTT so I've pared it down with an all black ensemble and in contrast opting for casual crisp white trainers, that if you squint have a certain Acne vibe about them right?

Outfit | Morning blues

Coat // Jaeger. Scarf // Rose and Rose. Jumper // Forever 21. Skirt // Primark. Boots // Asos. Bag // Primark

This jumper has to be one of my favourite purchases this season! At only £17.50 I can't believe the quality and warmth of the knit, and the fact its ticking two trends in one- roll neck and navy! Rose and Rose sent me this beautiful cashmere scarf so it was the perfect opportunity to pile up my blues on a crisp autumn morning. Cashmere is an ideal texture for our recent confusing weather because it fights off the chill whilst still being lightweight, definitely worth the investment.
